"Snoop is for sure for real," he added. "He really loves [Bob Marley] ... he wants to have a message of positivity ... he's written a song about fruit juice."

padraig: Nah, they are defined by violent homophobia.

TheJoe03: theflatline: Sorry, but black people are not indigenous to Jamaica.

It's like Puerto Ricans calling themselves Boricuas.

What are you rambling about? Who said black people were native Jamaicans? Most people in the US aren't native Americans but we're still somehow Americans. This is the New World.


Indigenous means originating and living in. The quote used in the headline uses it.  So I am assuming some Jamaican said it.

Boricuas were an indian tribe in Puerto Rico, and most Puerto Ricans run around calling themselves boricuas without any knowledge it was an indian tribe.  Which is really hysterical because most latin americans always deny any indigenous heritage, all claiming to be pure spanish.

I will quote ol bob.

If you know your history
Then you would know where you're coming from
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
Who the 'eck do I think I am

theflatline: Indigenous means originating and living in.


And we generally consider you to get that status after a few hundred years. Because if you want to be pedantic about it, no one not living in Olduvai Gorge is indigenous

theflatline:

But Rastafarianism arose in Jamaica in the 1930s...wouldn't that make it indigenous to Jamaica?

The Niyabinghi branch of Rastafarianism, for shizzle.

Who cares about their stupid religion? I've always liked the band Steel Pulse, but when you listen to songs such as Wild Goose Chase, you quickly realize they are just another bunch of reactionary religious conservatives.

FirstNationalBastard: Ryker's Peninsula: "Smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music" may not be what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture, but it is how the entire rest of the planet defines your culture.

It also should be the only thing that defines their culture.

Make Marley their deity, smoking weed their sacrament, and call it a day. I mean, seriously... does anyone care about any of the other shiat? We can prove Marley existed, and that weed is good. That would put them one up on every religion out there.


I think you're thinking of trustfundafarians, ya know white boys with dreadlocks who's only knowledge of rasta come from listening to Bob Marley

/damn it I'm broke this week and I'm craving Caribbean food(no i can't make it myself)
